Photographer Nichole Sobecki and reporter Ty McCormick visited Niger to report on the EU-funded crackdown on human smuggling. Their reporting is from Part II of "Europe Slams Its Gates," Foreign Policy's special, five-part investigation into Europe's response to the migration crisis. This week, Nichole's photographs along with her and McCormick's notes from the field, will be posted on the Pulitzer Center's Instagram account.
